“Portrait of Wally,” Egon Schiele’s tender picture of his mistress, Walburga (“Wally”) Neuzil, is the pride of Vienna’s Leopold Museum. This “cinematic masterwork” (Huffington Post) traces its history – from Schiele’s affectionate gesture toward his young lover, to the theft of the painting from a Jewish art dealer fleeing Vienna for her life, to its surprise resurfacing at the Museum ofModern Art more than half a century later. (Andrew Shea, 2012, 90 min.) Reception to follow the screening.
